Food Service Equipment Reports

Walk-in Coolers Require Energy Saving Doors

“Automatic door closers or strip curtains now are required on walk-ins. Many refrigeration companies now make doors with spring-loaded hinges as standard equipment (though other types of door closers are permitted as well). Some offer hinged strip doors and air curtains as optional equipment in addition to the door-closing hinges. Some plan to spec future strip doors as standard equipment in combination with spring loaded hinges."


Aleco® to Show Energy Efficient and Versatile Door Solutions at The NAFEM Show

Muscle Shoals, AL (January 2009) –

Aleco, providing energy efficient solutions for the food service industry for over 30 years will feature its line of strip doors, impact doors, and the JetStream™ Air Curtain at The Nafem Show in Orlando, February 5 - 7, 2009.

Under the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007 new installations of walk-in coolers and freezers are required to use “interior strip curtains or swinging doors" to increase energy efficiency.  The company claims that using an Aleco strip door meets this new requirement, helps maintain the unit’s constant temperature and can reduce the infiltration of warm air by as much as 93%; saving energy and prolonging the life of the cooling system.  In many areas the use of strip doors in a walk-in qualifies for an energy saving incentive from the local utility company.

Aleco’s energy saving door solutions also save time and effort with quick and easy installation. The company’s TearAway™ pre-punched, perforated strips, available in smooth and Scratch-Guard® Ribbed Ribbedas well as cooler and reinforced freezer formulations are versatile, ready-to-hang strips suitable for applications where quick and easy installation and replacement are required.  These strips are available in a partial roll of pre-punched stripping material to fit the most popular door sizes as well as in a continuous Custom Bulk Roll of perforated, pre-punched stripping to fit individual specifications.  The Clear-Valu® ImpacDor® for walk-in coolers and freezers is a cost effective alternative to conventional strip doors; using two overlapping crystal clear flexible panels to create and maintain an energy tight seal to keep food fresher longer and increase energy efficiency.

Aleco’s ImpacDors are suitable for a variety of applications where high performance, low maintenance and easy installation are a priority.  Their attractive laminate finishes match any restaurant décor. The RD-175 is lightweight, durable and has an insulated panel and full perimeter seal making it an ideal solution where rack and push cart traffic requires a smooth, easy opening between public spaces and the back of the house. The ¾" FS-500 has a rigid, solid wood core, reinforced metal spine and easily installed EZ hinge system.  The rugged 1 ¾" insulated HD-175 provides an effective sound and thermal barrier and resists moisture, dust and chemicals.

The JetStream Air Curtain provides insect, dust, odor and climate control for building entryways in foodservice and processing facilities. An invisible barrier of air protects entrances from contaminants, stops wind and reduces infiltration of outside air into both heated or air conditioned areas.  The company says that the low profile, energy efficient JetStream Air Curtain helps control heating and cooling costs by providing precise, continual and uniform air distribution with adjustable air velocity through a directional plenum.

Complete information on these energy saving products and Aleco’s entire product line are available by visiting Aleco in Booth 1035, at www.aleco.com, by phone 1-800-633-3120 or e-mail info@aleco.com.

Aleco’s ImpacDor® Provides Restaurant Supply With Attractive Energy-efficient Solution

When Dave Hummel, owner of Saratoga Restaurant Supply in Gansevoort, New York, needed to replace the door between his retail showroom and warehouse he wanted something that he thought would be relatively easy to find. But the task proved to be more difficult than he anticipated. “A door in that location would be seen by any customer in my showroom," says Hummel. “We needed something that was functional but looked good as well." He looked at several types of doors but couldn’t find anything with the combination of features he needed. “There weren’t many alternatives," he added.

Saratoga Restaurant Supply is not your average retail supplier. One of the largest food service equipment dealers in the Northeast, Saratoga’s 21,000 square foot facility includes a 2,000 square foot fully functional state-of-the-art demo kitchen along with consulting and design services. When Dave Hummel found Aleco, a manufacturer that specializes in several types of commercial doors for the food service industry, he finally found something that matched the features he was looking for. Aleco’s ImpacDor model RD-175 bi-parting door seemed to fit the bill. He could even get it in red, a color that would coordinate nicely with his showroom décor.

The RD-175 ImpacDor had several features that impressed Hummel, like the molded polyethylene loop bumpers and the stainless steel offset hinges with stainless steel jamb guards at the bottom. But it was another feature that really got his attention. “With our air conditioned showroom there can be a significant temperature difference between it and the stockroom," Hummel continued. “What really sold me was the self-sealing feature of the door making it very cost effective." The 1 ¾" thickness of the RD-175 with an insulating foam core adds to the full perimeter draft seals to increase energy efficiency.
